Excellent article on common techniques used to manipulate large groups (full text below)


"Media Manipulation of the Masses: How the Media Psychologically Manipulates" 7/4/18



Even though I have worked in academia for years and have enjoyed the benefits of helping learning minds to expand their horizons, I have had one gnawing concern. Learning institutions typically help students, at best, to make a living but they fail miserably at teaching how to live life. These areas pertain to the realm of accumulated wisdom. Of course, wisdom presupposes knowledge, that is, the correct and consistent application of knowledge as truth. As a behavioral professional and an academic, I wish institutions would teach practical things such as how media, government, religion, and even academia itself, can indoctrinate the masses. For the purpose of this article I will focus on the media (and a little on academia).


I can very much remember talking to journalism students and perusing their text books. I noticed the emphasis on “objective and balanced reporting.” I always laugh. Having been a student who used “qualitative methods of research” I knew very well how every bit of research made by any human being is always tainted at some level with some bias. I know some will have a cow at this but even quantum physicists tell us the same. In the media, even a well-intentioned journalist is affecting his message in some form.


I would like to focus on how the media can manipulate the masses through their message. You still see journalists reacting, “How dare you question me!” as if they belonged to some privileged priesthood directly connected to a Divine stream of ultimate truth.


I have endeavored to share just some of the tactics of psychological manipulation of mass thinking. Most reading this will easily recognize these. I don’t claim to provide an exhaustive list.


Guilt by Association

All that is necessary to destroy a person’s character publicly is to take that person and overtly or covertly associate them to something the masses will reject. Never mind if it is true or not, simply to question it or make the association is sufficient.


One example that comes to mind is a very clever twist I saw used by a famous newspaper. At the time, a political leader, greatly disliked by the editors of a newspaper, was portrayed in a very interesting way. They put an article and his photo strategically in very close proximity to a picture of a circus clown that was part of some other story. I thought to myself, “Now that tactic wins the prize!” It was very subtle and very subconscious in approach. The ultimate message was, “This person is a clown, therefore laugh at him and consider him non-credible like you would with a clown.”


Another very typical way of using this same tactic is to connect, even if it is through intricate stratagem, the person to some law-breaking, shady, person, organization, or action. Even if it is not true, it will leave a dark cloud of doubt in the mind of the person receiving the information. That is why slander is so effective in destroying enemies. The media will never come out and admit that they do this. They are accountable to no one, much like some sort of immaculate and narcissistic god.

Just a Little Poison

The next way the media tries to manipulate minds is through, what is called, the verisimilitude. Now that is a real mouthful. It means that something is “very similar” to something else. In this case, it is mixing a little poison or a lie with the truth. It is possible to ingest into your body gallons of healthy food. If you simply mix a small amount of extremely powerful poison with it, you would be dead soon. If we graduate the amount of poison into smaller dosages we can do the same over time, at a much slower rate but getting the same results… your demise.


All the media has to do, in order to destroy a person, is to slowly administer lies (poison) about a person mixed in with good things. Eventually, they destroy their enemy and they come out looking like choir boys; clean and glistening.


Make it Funny

I’ve already mentioned how a political leader was made to look like a clown. I remember an influential leader characterized by the media as a bafoon, idiot, and dumb person. I can still see the political cartoons drawn of him making him look like some human monkey creature. Typically, monkeys are funny and into mischief. That message stuck.


Along these lines, photos that show the bad side of a person, and everyone has them, are used to portray enemies as stupid and/or psychotic fools. You can sometimes see this approach when a publication deliberately uses a photo of a person looking cross-eyed or bizarre. The editors choose photos that make the person look their worst. In contrast, when their favorite persons are put on the same page, they are shown in a hero’s stance, making them look their best. Coincidental? Absolutely not!


Making Sandwiches

A great technique to help build self-esteem in people, while correcting them, is called the “sandwich technique.” This approach is amazing because it uses positive reinforcement of the individual before and after you have shared a difficult area they need to change in. This assures to them that you still like them and that you respect them. It makes your message easy to accept with them.


When you take the same technique and switch it around, placing something positive in-between two negative pieces of information, it becomes quite destructive. In the media, you can come out looking objective and with a “pass” if you use this technique while still destroying your enemy. It is one of the most commonly used approaches by the media, in article after article pertaining to persons they dislike. Notice this… All you really need to hurt your opponent is to do a news piece on them. You start and close the report with negativity and doubt. This leaves a black cloud over their character. You get a free pass and you still got to be very nasty. This is like a school bully brat that gets away with murder and yet looks good.

Stacking the Experts

Have you ever noticed on TV a panel of intellectuals, journalists, etc. are chosen carefully where it is in disproportion but still looks balanced? Sometimes it is outrageously blatant and sometimes it is covert. Let’s say we dislike a position but we cannot say so for fear of looking bigoted. We can handpick the majority of our experts that will agree with us. Then we bring only one person that represents the side we dislike. We unload the pit-bull dogs on that person, all the while we look “balanced.”


Ridicule and labeling

I am often amused at the interesting adjectives used by a proponent of one side against the other. We hear words like “racist,” “Nazi,” “?-phobe,” “pin-head,” “antiquated,” “irrelevant,” “killer,” and more. By applying these labels on that person, what happens is that you freeze, isolate, and polarize that person. You make them out to look like they are part of a dangerous, scary, and insane fringe. This process is otherwise known in history as “character assassination.” In this case, it happens in the public forum on full display. Have you ever noticed that if the same is applied to the media, it is considered blasphemy? Who makes the media accountable? No one. They are free to destroy anyone they choose. That is why they secretly fear the internet. The tables can be turned on them by some little guy behind a screen.


Repetition Makes True

Incessant repetition of a lie registers as truth in the mind of the masses. Mass hysteria can be created by repeatedly reporting the dangers of some microbe infesting humans and taking over the world in tones of panic. Some of the most successful tyrants in history used great emotion and repetition to their advantage. Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister said that if “You repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” This brings us to my next point.


Make the Devil Look Like God and God Like the Devil

Hitler himself said, “By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.” In this technique, the attacker makes himself look like a benefactor and savior. He twists the sides. Have you ever wondered why the media narcissistically loves to see themselves as the protectors and keepers of truth? It almost has religious indoctrination undertones, doesn’t it? In classical religious literature we are told that the Devil deceives and disguises himself as an angel of light. I call this, characteristically, the reversing of the poles by making black look like white and vice-versa.



I don’t claim to have covered all aspects of the art of deceit as used in the media. These are as old as man himself. I simply attempted to provide some of the more obvious typical forms of deceit used to psychologically manipulate the masses. What can we learn from this? Perhaps the biggest lesson could be that we must not be naïve.


We must discriminately keep awake and aware. We must be hungry for truth wherever we find it. We must protect it and defend it. We need to be careful to avoid coming to hasty conclusions just because the “experts” say it. It is, very much, an individual journey. It is a great quest but filled with minefields. Be careful and beware.

THE NEXT COUPLE OF POSTS are the end result of compiling information from the manipulation of the Alabama Senate Race of 2017.

After Q Drop 2635, anons did an extensive digg that lasted almost two months.

On 1-26-19, a timeline of events was posted and can be found in QResearch at >>4913840

OR in the Information Warfare archive on pages 14-16 (just search on "page 14") at



A key outcome of this mammoth digg was the generation of several flowcharts depicting relationships between various individuals and organizations involved in DS/Dem propaganda.

These flowcharts are still highly relevant because'they show some of the major players in ongoing DS disinformation efforts to portrays conservatives as hatemongers, extremists & racists.

Chart 1

Key players in the Alabama Online Disinfo Campaign. there are 3 things to note:

a. There are 2 lines: one of orgs involved in Alabama fuckery and one of the German Marshall Fund/ASM "parent" orgs that are associated with anti-Russian and hawkish positions.

b. Common denominator is NEW KNOWLEDGE.

c. Originally, NEW KNOWLEDGE was the only known org discussed in connection with the Alabama scandal; only later did news of these other 3 orgs emerge.


Chart 2

TDIP, the SSCI & Disinfo2018. This complicated chart is not very pretty but does a pretty good job mapping out the relationships discussed in a companion article in the Daily Caller: "Fusion GPS-linked group worked with tech company tied to Russian 'false-flag' operation (1-10-19). Here we see NEW KNOWLEDGE at the center again, this time in relationship to The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP), SSCI, FusionGPS, Christopher Steele, Adam Waldman, and up to 10 mystery donors (SOROS is one?) who gave TDIP $50mil. Later I found out that TDIP was organized right after DJT's Inauguration and in opposition to his Presidency. It's still hard to find out the details on exactly what it has done, although is may simply have served as a money-laundering operation for FusionGPS.


Chart 3

This simple chart shows the three orgs that contributed to a report submitted to the SSCI on Dec 17, 2018 called "Tactics & Tropes of the Internet Research Agency," which was designed to prove that Russia really did interfere with our 2016 elections. It's really a puff piece with little if any real data analysis. But that didn't matter because only a day after the report was released, the story broke that NEW KNOWLEDGE had been involved in the Alabama scandal. As a result, the SSCI was not really able to exploit this report for propaganda purposes.

Interesting article posted in QR at >>7191062

The CFR Control of Major Media Sources


The major media conglomerates are all members of the CFR, which precludes any of its media members from accurately or honestly reporting the news, since all of the CFR members have sworn their allegiance to the CFR and its New World Order agenda.


The mainstream media rarely mentions the CFR, making it difficult to fully gauge its influence. When it is mentioned in the press in a controversial matter or incident, its role is likely whitewashed as trivial or irrelevant. Historically, the global elitists plans to acquire control of the media can be traced back to 1915. U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway provided a historical perspective of their plans in 1917:


In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise andedit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.


By gaining ownership of the “influential” print media nearly a century ago, the global elitists were able to assure that they would maintain control of the information flow to the masses, the “common people,” for decades to come. Today, they control the six or seven mass media conglomerates that in turn own or control all major TV and radio station syndicates; the print media, including newspapers, the educational books used in our schools and universities, and book and magazine publishers; the major internet service providers; music, video, and recording companies; and the Hollywood film industry, which accounts for the increase in obscenity, pornography, and violence in filmmaking......

MSNBC's chris hayes calls 8chan a "horrible dark organism of people…radicalizing each other"


Super creepy discussion. Below are mostly direct quotes of Chris Hayes trashing 8chan with ex-white supremicist who is now an "expert," Christian Picciolini.

Starts at 36:14.


CH:[Starts by talking about shooter in Poway. Then:]

It appears that he, like the mosque shooter in Christchurch NZ-and the Tree of Life shooter in Pittsburg-were radicalized online. There's a pretty active digital subculture of white supremicists and neo-Nazis who might have come to the movement initially interested in making bad jokes and trolling in an online forum but later find themselves immersed in a violent, racist, anti-Semitic ideology. Christian is a reformed white nationalist who has made it his mission to help others escape that life. And he's noticed certain patterns among those he's trying to help.


CP: I've been working with extremists for nearly 20 years. In that time, I've noticed a behavior pattern that I call "cult hoping." It's when vulnerable people are so desperate to fit in-to find a sense of identity or purpose-that they jump from one extreme group to another. Ideology isn't as important as the desire to belong.


CH: Christian's efforts to divert young white supremicists from this path are documented in a series called "Breaking Hate." A second episode airs at 9 pm Sunday night here on MS-NBC. [Then he introduces CP on air and they continue along the same lines. He's the author of the book White American Youth.]


CP: Talks about "young marginalized people" looking for identify, community and purpose in life" (= 3 pillars in life]…who go to "the fringes" where "they find these narratives, and there are people waiting for them."


CH: "How much have things changed [since you were active in a white supremacist group]"? CH specifically mentions 8chan as an example of a fringe group with this kind of ideology.


CP: [Says social media is like a "24 hour hate buffet where people can serve themselves." Says he was recruited in person, but now "young people can be on a message board like 4chan or 8chan and start laughing at some of these memes and get de-sensitized by them. And then they're sent to these other places where the rhetoric ramps up a little bit more, and where they're told certain words, and if they don't react in a certain way, if they use the N-word, recruiters are then keyed in as to whether they can take them a little bit further. If they start to laugh at those jokes.


CH talks about it being a "slow process of boundary pushing.".......[repetitive, yadayadayada]


CP: And they know they're not going to recruit everyone so they cast a wide net....talks again about the ones who laugh back at the anti-Semitic jokes or who aren't fazed by them and how they "tighten the screws on them."


CH gets really weird and begins to says it's like it's not even an active recruiter but some sort of "horrible dark organism of people sort of peer-to-peer radicalizing each other….."


CPresponds by saying that actually somebody's putting it out there: "So much of this is coming from Eastern Europe and from Russia. So many of these troll farms are putting out propaganda, from anti-vaccine stuff to flat-earth stuff to anti-Semitic tropes. Russia's been known to do this since 1903, when they put out the fraudulent book

[wait for it anons!

"The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."


[There's a little moar from "Breaking Hate"–must be Episode 1…complete with creepy music and the story of a group responsible for 5 murders….whoa, whoa, whoa…..]





  1. New MS-NBC series, ''Breaking Hate' airs 9 pm Sundays.

  2. Fantastic claim #1: that people are sent from 8chan to "these other places" where the rhetorical ramps up. [HUH???]

  3. Fantastic claim #2: "RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA"

This is quite a new thread, just set it up a few days b4 deplatforming.

And hence quite sparse.

@fj & BV's at qr took this thread down

in early May, did not like it (search on "garbage" in Meta)



Have never stopped trying to

fill in the blanks in the

Much new material

There are ties to Soros thru the Inst for strategic dialog, Atlantic Council, attacks on Qresearch & 8chan

World disinformation network

Your chart is the beginning of a map


So many tentacles--

You know this is not the main QRB thread, yes? As of this post we are on #49: >>


This is the start of a new information warfare thread, and there's not much here yet. But there will be soon. I just need to figure out what else needs reposting from the original thread, to add material from the interregnum, and to let anons know the thread exists so they will post here.

Would be more visible on QR but obviously cannot post it there, since it was summarily deleted there a few months ago. This board is the only safe place for it. If all else fails, could start an Q information warfare board but would rather work within the existing Q boards. Got enough to do with that too.

Can be reached here, I check in periodically (assuming board is up).

Q #3436

CBSN report: "Tracking Disinformation on Social Media"


Just got a chance to listen to this CNET "expert" reporter Dan Patterson


Anons have SO much info on this. And Dan has SO little.

Let's get specific, Dan's in green.


>We've been following bots

Nope--no evidence of bots, never has been, just a claim

>Conspiracies have exploded--like Ukraine being behind 2016 election hacking

>But actually, "it was Russia"


>Qanon narrative, which is "related to the Qanon sub-Reddit"

whoops Dan--producer has to shout in his it's a message board

>or message board

>Related to Hunter Biden false narrative

Great! We'll get credit on this one....

>Also Pizzagate

Pizzagate was a year b4 Q

>Also conspiracies re HRC running in 2020

Since when is asking whether HRC will run a conspiracy?

>how do i know they're bots? i work with 'data scientists'

Ya mean Jonathan Morgan of New Knowledge?

That guy accused of Alabama election fuckery last Dec? Q 2635)

>i use dashboard from Securing Democracy Alliance

Ya mean bogus tool Hamilton 68?

And did you mean the Alliance for Security Democracy--ASD?

>Part of German Marshall Fund

Yep--we love ASD coz they got great folks like John Podesta on their Board

>GMF = "non-partisan" think tank

Yep--DS from both left & right

>how to counter the "domestic operations that are popping up"

>domestic ops like "2018" Alabama senate election

that's 2017, not 2018, Dan

But gosh--you are actually telling the truth: that the dems got caught influencing an election

It's our fren Jonathon Morgan, who also helped design fake tool Hamilton 68 w/ASD

a man of sterling character

>we can expect to see domestic disinfo operations pop up throughout 2020 election

TRUE. But does Dan realize he just said it will be the DEMS??


Anons dig a huge dig on last winter, Information Warfare archive has all the info:

from QRB:


>The QAnon Anonymous podcast is quite shilly

It's more than just shilly--it's the center of a disinformation campaign run by Travis View, who just gave a presentation at a StratCom in early Nov. Not sure who is running the conference but probably the Soros-funded Atlantic Council. Supporters: Embassy of Sweden, Google, UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office, European Union, some dept in Lithuania (print tiny), and Lennar International.


Just went over the conference speaker list last night. Lots of DS heavy-hitters, from disinformation groups like the Atlantic Council, German Marshall Fund, Graphika, Institute for Strategic Dialogue (has produced a major anti-Q report). People from NATO, the CFR, and Homeland Security (ex-Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen was keynote speaker--she's done events like this before). Travis View talked about the "Qanon conspiracy theory" there on a panel focusing on "example of misleading information."

TV is also good buddies with hotwheels; most anons know.

Mandating vaxxes, banning anti-vax speech & convincing people they're safe: Renee Diresta & Dr. Heidi Larson


First step in upholding the right of people to discuss the pros and cons of vaccination is identifying those who oppose the right to discuss it and promote mandatory vaxxing. Two examples are below.


Renee Diresta

Until recently, was the Director of Research at New Knowledge fake research organization

(known for "muh Russia" agenda & scandal resulting from their online manipulation of voters in the Alabama Senate election in 2017)

(from #4913840: "Details on Alabama Election Meddling Timeline 3.0").

But she has no scientific degree. Ed = bpolitical science and computer technology (4-yr degrees?)

CFR member.

Co-founded Vaccinate California, which promotes mandatory vaccinations for school children.

Helped pass SB276 and SB714 into law in Sept 2019, which requires health officials to approve requests for medical exemptions to school-required vaccinations


Dr. Heidi Larson

She studies what makes people vaccines skeptics (like it's a problem of ignorance or mental imbalance).

Just gave a talk at the recent Atlantic-sponsored StratCom conference on this topic.

She's an anthropologist, not an MD.

Founder (2007): Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), Univ. of Washington

Funded by Gates Foundation; grew from 7 to 300; her focus = "vaccine acceptance"

Same panel as someone we know: TRAVIS VIEW (talking about Q as conspiracy theory)

Panel theme was how to change public opinion about "disinformation"

Previous talk: Larson spoke of the "emotional contagion" around vaccine due to social media

Conference blurb:

"Dr. Larson's research focuses on the analysis of social and political factors that can affect the uptake of health interventions and influence policies. Her research group conducts global monitoring of issues surrounding vaccine acceptance, with a focus on identifying emerging issues and advising on risk and rumor management."


Mandating vaxxes, prohibiting discussion, and convincing people they're safe go hand in hand.

Big Brother at work.

The battle over free speech & anti-vax speech ban on social media


  • There's currently a battle raging over anti-vax speech. Is it free speech? Michelle Malkin says yes:

  • So does Rob Schneider:

  • But social media platforms are making it harder & harder to access anti-vax information.

  • This despite the fact that there is evidence that vaxxes are not all safe: [on contaminated polio vaccine; see also "Dr. Mary's Monkey"]

  • But that's not enough for WaPo, which wants social media to take an even stronger stance:

  • Other countries wo/a Bill of Rights have already done so:

  • Who is against vaxxes? article says "racist, radical, far-right political parties."


Ban on anti-vax speech = ban on free speech

Their argument:

  • Anti-vax speech is based on ignorance.

  • It is anti-public health.

  • Thus, it is dangerous and should be banned.


Three pronged attack:

a. ban anti-vax speech

b. promote pro-vax propaganda

c. pass laws mandating vaxxes


IF ANTI-VAX speech is banned, what's next???

Michelle Malkin: Fight for the freedom to question vaccines

follow-up to Rob Scheider's recent comments



Thank you, Rob Schneider. Thank you.


Very rarely do Hollywood celebrities stick their necks out on behalf of the concerns of ordinary parents whose voices have been suppressed by the liberal media, Silicon Valley and the political establishment of both parties. But this week, the actor and comedian used his formidable Twitter platform to stand against the increasing censorship of vaccine skeptics by Big Pharma and Big Tech. This is what speaking truth to power looks like.


With the Overton window on acceptable discourse about government-coerced immunization rapidly shrinking, Schneider’s timing couldn’t be better.


“Free Speech is ALL speech. Even the speech that you find repugnant,” Schneider declared. “We don’t need people deciding FOR us what to think, see or hear. That’s a load of totalitarian crap.” He singled out Amazon “banning books that dare question medical orthodoxy,” as well as “Facebook, Google, (and) YouTube” for burying information inconvenient to vaccine manufacturers, their lobbyists and water-carriers in elected office.....

History of this thread

There used to be a Information Warfare thread on QR, I was OP.

Contained much relevant info even tho it was only set up in March.

Because it was new & there was a lot of info, many posts were mine (others were transferred by me from QR--so looked like mine). BO/BVs did not like that--used it to say the thread was mostly "garbage."

Here's a list of what was there from discussion in META: >>>/qresearch/6480407

It was bumplocked last April and then suddenly deleted over my objections >>>/qresearch/6476526

Archive is here:

Thread was restarted as Information Warfare II on QRB at the end of July, so it would be safe from deletion. It's still brand new, because of deplatforming.


Recent Q posts have focused on information warfare:

>>7553972 Banning Guns Will Not Make Schools Safe


published today


Authored by James Bovard via The Future of Freedom Foundation,


School shootings have become the latest pretext for politicians to destroy the Second Amendment.


Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, declared in a Democratic presidential candidates’ debate,

“I was part of the first generation that saw routine school shootings. We have now produced the second school-shooting generation in this country. We dare not allow there to be a third.”


Another Democratic presidential candidate, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Cal.), invoked school shootings to justify confiscating millions of firearms across the nation:

“It’s not just the violence that they’ve caused; it’s the fear, the immeasurable fear that our children live in because they are still on our streets. I want to get rid of that fear.”


In reality, despite a tidal wave of misleading propaganda, the number of school shootings has fallen sharply over the past 30 years.


But anti-gun activists in government and the media have done their best to persuade people otherwise.

Last year, the federal Education Department reported that “nearly 240 schools … reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting” in the 2015-16 school year. National Public Radio investigated and found that the feds had exaggerated school shootings by twentyfold; NPR could confirm only 11 incidents. Cleveland was credited with 37 shooting incidents, when in reality it was simply a report of 37 schools that noted “possession of a knife or a firearm.” In DeKalb County, Georgia, “a toy cap gun fired on a school bus” counted as a school shooting. One school system was listed as a shooting locale for an incident involving a pair of scissors. NPR noted,


Most of the school leaders NPR reached had little idea of how shootings got recorded for their schools. For example, the [federal Civil Rights Data Collection] reports 26 shootings within the Ventura Unified School District in Southern California. “I think someone pushed the wrong button,” said Jeff Davis, an assistant superintendent there. The outgoing superintendent, Joe Richards, “has been here for almost 30 years and he doesn’t remember any shooting,” Davis added.


Even the leftist news site Vox noted, “The risk of a child getting killed by someone else at school in 2011, the last year for which there’s final data, was about 1 in 5 million.” Vox again: The rate of “serious violent victimization” among students — rape, sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated assault — was about 1 in 1,000 in 2011, down from 1 in 100 in 1995. In 1995, 10 percent of students were victims of some kind of crime at school; in 2011, just 4 percent were.” Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox observed, “We over-obsess about school shootings. Surveys show the majority of students are afraid there will be a mass shooting at their school. These are rare events — scary though they may be, tragic though they may — and we shouldn’t over-respond.”


Imitation shootings


But hard facts have proven no match for sustained hype for antigun activists.

Police and schools have responded to the new paranoia with an array of drills that have been lame-brained even by government standards.


Last January, numerous Indiana elementary school teachers were shot as part of a “safe schools” training program. According to the Indiana State Teachers Association, sheriffs’ deputies ordered teachers “into a room four at a time, told them to crouch down and then shot them execution-style with pellets in rapid succession,” leaving several of them bloodied and many of them screaming. The union complained, “The teachers were terrified, but were told not to tell anyone what happened. Teachers waiting outside that heard the screaming were brought into the room four at a time and the shooting process was repeated.” The union is “is lobbying lawmakers to add [legislative] language prohibiting teachers from being shot with any sort of ammunition” during school-safety drills, according to the Indianapolis News.


Schools are “increasingly turning their hallways into an imitation of a real mass shooting, complete with police officers firing BB guns and drama students enlisted to play victims, made up with fake blood and bullet holes. Occasionally, the drills are sprung on teachers and students without warning,” as a student newspaper in Great Neck, New York, observed. A Pennsylvania teacher commented that she was “more traumatized than trained” after teachers were shot with airsoft guns by a fake active shooter. “We had colleagues shooting colleagues, we had people getting hit with [plastic] pellets.… People were screaming, trying to run. People were tripping over each other. It was just horrendous,” Elizabeth Yanelli recalled.....

Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation

by H. Michael Sweeney.


These 25 rules are everywhere in media, from political debates, to television shows, to comments on a blog.


  1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.


  1. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.


  1. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such “arguable rumors”. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a “wild rumor” which can have no basis in fact.


  1. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.


  1. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks”, “right-wing”, “liberal”, “left-wing”, “terrorists”, “conspiracy buffs”, “radicals”, “militia”, “racists”, “religious fanatics”, “sexual deviates”, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.


  1. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning — simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent’s viewpoint.


  1. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.


  1. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough “jargon” and “minutiae” to illustrate you are “one who knows”, and simply say it isn’t so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.


  1. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues with denial they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.


  1. Associate opponent charges with old news. A derivative of the straw man usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with. Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually them be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues — so much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.


  1. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions. Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the “high road” and “confess” with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made — but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, “just isn’t so.” Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later. Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for “coming clean” and “owning up” to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.

Anonymous ID: 6eeac2 Dec. 28, 2019, 2:01 p.m. No.40456   🗄️.is 🔗kun
  1. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to loose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.


  1. Alice in Wonderland Logic. Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards with an apparent deductive logic in a way that forbears any actual material fact.


  1. Demand complete solutions. Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the crime at hand completely, a ploy which works best for items qualifying for rule 10.


  1. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions. This requires creative thinking unless the crime was planned with contingency conclusions in place.


  1. Vanishing evidence and witnesses. If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won’t have to address the issue.


  1. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can “argue” with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.


  1. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can’t do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how “sensitive they are to criticism”.


  1. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the “play dumb” rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon). In order to completely avoid discussing issues may require you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.


  1. False evidence. Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.


  1. Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body. Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without open discussion. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be secret when properly handled. For instance, if you own the prosecuting attorney, it can insure a Grand Jury hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed an unavailable to subsequent investigators. Once a favorable verdict (usually, this technique is applied to find the guilty innocent, but it can also be used to obtain charges when seeking to frame a victim) is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed.


  1. Manufacture a new truth. Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s), leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.


  1. Create bigger distractions. If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.


  1. Silence critics. If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their death, arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of blackmail information, or merely by proper intimidation with blackmail or other threats.


  1. Vanish. If you are a key holder of secrets or otherwise overly illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen.

WAPO: "The coming disinformation tsunami"

Article reveals what WAPO and other news outlet are gonna be pushing during 2020: that 'muh Russia' is true and conservatives are feeding people disinformation. Q is part of the disinfo.

1-2-2020, by Greg Sargent


Let’s review. Since 2016, the special counsel’s investigation and two Senate Intelligence Committee reports have spelled out in great detail that Russian disinformation warfare against the 2016 election was extraordinarily concerted, insidious, broad in scope and deliberately crafted to divide the country along racial and social lines. Numerous top intelligence officials have warned that Russia and other outside actors will strike again.


The entire Ukraine scandal, for which Trump has been impeached, is largely about disinformation. Trump extorted Ukraine to get it to announce public statements that would smear Biden with disinformation and help validate conspiracy theories that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in 2016.


In effect, Trump was trying to pressure a foreign power to help manufacture more disinformation to help mislead U.S. voters about a domestic political opponent and absolve Russia of its original disinformation warfare campaign against this country.


Trump has retweeted accounts from the far-right conspiracy theorist QAnon. What’s more, Trump and his prominent supporters have played an active role in spreading disinformation against Democrats. After a conspiracy theory falsely connected former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to the recent Texas mass murderer, shadowy but prominent Trump allies amplified the claim.


Trump himself recently retweeted a tweet from one of his favorite conspiracy theorists — whose work he has promoted in the past — that falsely created the impression that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) partied on the anniversary of 9/11. And remember that distorted video of Nancy Pelosi slowed down to make her look drunk?


All this is a sign of what the Democratic nominee could face. It’s no wonder that some Democrats are worried we might even see “deepfake” media manipulations. Imagine such ultra-sophisticated video distortions of Biden’s rambles, retweeted by Trump, and perhaps even by reporters.


Trump views disinformation not as a scourge to be combated in the name of protecting our democracy, but as an ally. In this particular case, Trump has not retweeted the video of Biden — yet. But let’s try to learn from this.


At this point, no good-faith actors can pretend there is any excuse for playing any role, even an unwitting one, in making this problem worse.

'''These serve as the basis for the CAPPED flowchart, which combines key elements of past flowcharts from last year

starting with twitter:

Inauthentic Facebook pages amplified top Ukrainian news aggregators by @DFRLab


on Pragmatico - Uk PR firm

Despite being hosted on two different domains, the articles communicated the same message: Aleksand Knyazuk, a Ukrainian Ministry of Interior official, might be corrupt.

This network may have been partially politically motivated — some of the pages launched personal attacks against particular Ukrainian politicians — and partially commercial in nature.


pointer to this article:

This year, Facebook announced takedowns of properties attributed to Twinmark Media Enterprises, a digital marketing company in the Philippines, and Nic Gabunada, the social media director for Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte’s 2016 campaign. In both cases, Facebook said the operations were engaged in “coordinated inauthentic activity.”


Gabunada previously insisted in an interview with BuzzFeed News that the Facebook engagement for Duterte’s campaign had been “organic” and “volunteer-driven.”


As previously reported by BuzzFeed News, some politicians who had decried Duterte’s use of fake Facebook accounts and trolling in 2016 had used social media manipulation services in their own campaigns.

>From Fake Video to Twitter Bots: Tips & Tricks For Exposing Disinfo

Political campaigns are now taking place online and disinformation is increasingly a part of the information ecosystem. As newsrooms gear up for 2020 election coverage, they'll need to beef up their disinfo-spotting skills as well. When it comes to identifying fake video and social media bots, all it takes is a little practice.

In this session, Nadine Ajaka of the Washington Post and Andy Carvin of the Digital Forensic Research Lab will demonstrate their methodologies for spotting fake video and social media bots.

The session is designed for:

>Journalists interested in covering disinformation but aren't sure where to start.

>Newsrooms already engaged in disinformation-related reporting

>Anyone looking to learn how to identify potential disinformation in these forms and gaining the tools for teaching their newsrooms how to do the same

Open Information Partnership(, a partner with DFRLab, along with Bellingcat, Media Diversity Institute, and Zinc Networks. Their website is exceedingly sparce. I have seen DFRLab people also have bellingcat ties, some having moved on to The Independent or The Guardian. Here is part of the Media Diversity about us info.


Old Televisions with face

What do we do?

The Media Diversity Institute (MDI) works internationally to encourage and facilitate responsible media coverage of diversity. It aims to prevent the media from intentionally or unintentionally spreading prejudice, intolerance and hatred which can lead to social tensions, disputes and violent conflict. MDI encourages instead, fair, accurate, inclusive and sensitive media coverage in order to promote understanding between different groups and cultures.


The rationale

The powerful influence of the media on our societies is well known – it shapes our views and our behaviour. Although the media often aggravate divisions in society, exclude moderate and minority voices, and foment conflict, they also possess an enormous capacity to contribute to the solution of these very problems.


People experience diversity in many ways: race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religious belief, age, income, and so on. Diversity can inspire social and economic progress, vibrant communities, and a richness of life. All too often, however, diversity engenders inequality, suspicion, fear, discrimination, repression, and violent conflict.


Journalists and media organisations hold a unique power to shape our experience of diversity. Through their actions, they can help diverse communities gain visibility and acceptance, or they can exacerbate misunderstanding and create division among different groups and cultures. The war in the former Yugoslavia and the genocide in Rwanda are among the more extreme examples of how the media can play a powerful role in tearing apart multi-ethnic communities by inciting hatred but, in all societies across the world, almost without exception, prejudice, intolerance, and misunderstanding fostered by the media cause various levels of problems and difficulties.


MDI believes it is critically important that the international community explore the vast potential of the media to help foster tolerance and understanding between different groups and cultures.

It's the same guy referenced by Q in 2018 Dec. (Q #2635)

re Alabama Senate race scandal

Big digg last Dec, Jan, Feb.

Now here he is AGAIN!!


CAMPAIGN 2020 Billionaire Who Bankrolled Faulty App in Iowa Democrat Caucus Also Funded Sabotage Ops in 2017 Alabama Senate Race: Reid Hoffman

This Silicon Valley technocrat is notorious for funding shady political operations.


Big League Politics has reported about Acronym, the political organization that is behind Shadow Inc., the tech firm that made the faulty app that caused massive delays in reporting the Democrat results of the Iowa caucus.


Acronym is closely tied to South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the failed campaign of Hillary Clinton, and it is funded by Silicon Valley oligarch Reid Hoffman. Hoffman has a history of funding shady social media operations, which makes it incomprehensible that a firm funded by him would be tasked with securing electoral integrity for the all-important Iowa caucus.


Hoffman, who founded the popular networking portal LinkedIn, has frequently funded campaigns to manipulate voters using technology. As the Democrats accuse the Russians of running disinfo ops to influence elections, one of their richest backers actually does it, gets caught doing it, receives with no repercussions, and is given an opportunity to do it yet again. Hoffman’s top henchman is Dmitri Mehlhorn, who used to promote privatization of schools before he joined the dark side.



Hoffman ties into a giant disinfo network revolving around muh Russia and involving the DNC up to their necks. For more, see Information Warfare thread:

Moar on Reid Hoffman & Dmitri Mehlhorn

This is the SECOND TIME Hoffman has been involved in a failed Dem political project. Why do his projects fail?


Here is another article on Hoffman and Mehlhorn:

Group That Sabotaged Iowa Caucus Begun by Billionaire Backer of Alabama ‘False Flag’ Campaign


Mehlhorn excerpt:


Having fostered friendships with nationally known Silicon Valley oligarchs like right-wing libertarian Trump supporter Peter Thiel and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, is now making his name as a top sugar-daddy of the Democratic anti-Trump resistance.


Following Trump’s election in 2016, Hoffman plowed his money into an array of new Democrat-aligned social media groups through a funding hub he founded called Investing in US.


To run Investing in US on a day-to-day basis, Hoffman tapped Mehlhorn, a venture capitalist and political strategist used to walking the line between the corporate world and Democratic Party.


“There was no risk-capital or growth-capital arm of the resistance, and so that is what we’ve tried to build,” Mehlhorn told Vanity Fair. “Now, in terms of what that implies, that implies that we are backing founders, so people who we think have big, potentially game-changing ideas.”


Mehlhorn’s career path tracked closely with neoliberal party favorites like Buttigieg and Cory Booker. He studied at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, launched his career at McKinsey Associates, and became a leading advocate for school privatization as the chief operating officer of Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst.


Dmitri Mehlhorn


According to Mehlhorn’s bio, he sits on the board of American Prison Data Systems, a company that claims to reduce recidivism by giving prisoners tablets to study coding for five hours a day.


Mehlhorn is also an advisor to the Democratic group DigiDems, which Buttigieg’s 2020 presidential campaign paid $1540 for technology services.


In a 2018 Medium post, announcing the “founders” that Investing in US planned to back, Mehlhorn resorted to distinctly neoconservative talking points to emphasize the mission of his organization.


After quoting Ronald Reagan, he declared, “Trump and his movement, borrowing heavily from other authoritarian criminals such as Hugo Chavez and Vladimir Putin, promised to hollow out America’s principles in favor of his own personal enrichment.”


Pledging to “inoculate our politics and our economy against corruption, white nationalism, and mass deceit,” Mehlhorn announced major donations to “diverse groups” with names like Woke Vote, PushBlack, and an “anti-Nazi” organization known as Integrity for America.


Among the top recipients of support from Investing in US was McGowan’s Acronym, which Mehlhorn described merely as a “media group.”


As The Grayzone reported, Acronym has ballooned since its founding into a massive dark money operation, even launching a Super PAC dubbed Pacronym that has raked in money from hedge fund billionaires like Seth Klarman and Donald Sussman.

Termed the "boogaloo," this ideology self organizes across social media communities, boasts tens of thousands of users, exhibits a complex division of labor, evolves well-developed channels to innovate and distribute violent propaganda, deploys a complex communication network on extremist, mainstream and dark Web communities, and articulates a hybrid structure between lone-wolf and cell-like organization. Like a virus which awakens from dormancy, this meme has emerged with startling speed in merely the last 34 months..''

From this thread:


Since 2016 it seems, a tight nucleus of domestic far-left social science phds have been coordinating with multinational tech and media corporations, and heavy-hitting think tanks, as well as potentially national security personnel, to try and turn the power of public and private surveillance and psyops against "anons" (whose non-conforming narratives they label as "white nationalist" "disinformation").


This was before 8chan was shut down, right after the pizza gate meme blew up and Trump was elected. This doesn't look good, anons, stay safe out there. This smacks of a government and corporate team to psy-op the non-elite segment of the population in the United States.

MSM Articles on Q and 8chan: ~1530 articles thru December 2019


End of Year Report

There are now over 1500 MSM pieces on Q (mostly articles with a few videos). By far, the greatest number of hit pieces were published in August (440), when 8chan was deplatformed after Cloudflare refused to provide DDoS protection & the situation deteriorated from there. The focus since Aug 5 deplatforming was more on 8chan (and later 8kun) than QResearch until December, when 8chan articles took a complete dive. Good news, because it reflects the fact that 8kun is running well (despite ongoing challenges) and is no longer newsworthy, at least for the moment. Articles on QResearch are also pretty "plain vanilla" (and no news is good news).

MSM Articles on Q and 8chan: ~1700 articles Jan 1 2020 thru March 2020




The MSM has been writing on Q since Dec. 2017, although it really picked up in March 2018 when Roseanne endorsed Q. August 2018, MSM launched its first major attack. But the biggest attack was indirect: the 8chan deplatforming in August 2019.


Since 8kun got replatformed in Nov, the focus shifted back to attacking Q. MSM articles continue to be 95% negative, with a couple of exceptions by more sympathetic pubs (American Thinker and Zerohedge--AT's Jan. 2020 article was picked up by ZH). It also apparently elicited an attack:


But there are still small signs that Q is becoming viewed as more mainstream. Jesse Waters' casual mention in December helped "normalize" the movement (and he didn't get attacked too badly, although NYT did respond predictably). Some of the winter articles lament this normalization--good news for Q's.

tanks friend, mucho gracias.

Didn't get to look b4 now, prepping for class.

Good class sure glad we've have 'em


I'm good for now, i am OP for many of those images. But there may be moar later, depends on where anons and Q goes with these digs. Would like to do moar on them - they were really a labor of love. Putting together the global disinformation network. I've posted a lot of digs but would have to stop bakin' to do it full-time. Can't - not the right time. Right now, need to work on learning more about videos so i can compact them and save on endchan.

also on new thread in comms (WA/OR) bc there's a lot of stuff that reveals antifa actions.

Wish 8kun would handle larger files - and also load them faster. Must be possible bc they load fast on end. But glad just to have a platform, glad for anything really that allows the work to go on.

In Q 4850, Q posted on a hearing by the House on "disinformation" tomorrow with disinfo "experts." These individuals are actually disinformation AGENTS.


Here is a post placed on both /qr/ and /qrb/ just now.



i have extensive relevant info on this

Dug on it for MONTHS starting with Alabama Senate Race scandal in Dec 2018 - out of which two of us started to develop amodel of the global disinformation network


Some was in the Information Warfare thread:

Thread was deleted against my strong objections in Qresearch (and why i will NEVER put any threads on Qresearch board)

But it still exists in this archive (first 20 pages - KEY):

entire archive:


But there is more relevant info in the /qrb/ Information Warfare II thread, which can be found here:

See that thread for diggs on Melanie Smith and Joan Donovan, among other individuals/orgs involved in the global information network. See below.



Here is one of the versions of the disinfo network developed by my dig partner:

i have one too although his is more complete:

(had to reproduce it coz the original is 404'd - wish i knew how that happened)


However i started adding more pieces here involving Atlantic Council, the UN, and others:

That model is a WORK IN PROGRESS


HERE: Here is stuff on Grafika & Melanie Smith:


And on Joan Donovan:


And there is much, much more:

  • in the Information Warfare /qrb/ thread and Information Warfare I archive

  • in text form in, MANY digs (50-100). There are ALL KINDS OF CONNECTIONS to be dug on!!

please post on the Information Warfare thread II and expand the database


attached is additional information that is a bit redundant in this thread but relevant so i'll post it again for the sake of convenience.

here's some helpful hints if you are being hacked by a "Microsoft Hacker": run your "disk cleanup" and you don't have 40 kb after 2 cleanups, then you are being hacked! if you still see a: 6.47 kb this is a "Microsoft IP6 to IP4 network adapter," 20 kb (20 kb + 40 kb= 60 kb) this is a "Microsoft IP6 device adapter," 1 mb this is a "Microsoft Wi-Fi adapter." All of these connections are attached to your computer/ISP connection and is going to Microsoft's SQL servers so that a Microsoft Hacker can access your computer/network. Please check your computers/servers for these Microsoft Hacker Tricks. If you need any help getting rid of these Microsoft devices, i can definitely help everyone out and show you how to get rid of them.


Sincerely & SEMPER FI!
